Penguins and Capitals bring their rivalry to Twitter

— -- What do you do when someone pokes fun at your team? Get them right back, of course.

That's exactly what happened between the? Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals?on Twitter Wednesday:

Washington, D.C. hasn't won a title in the four major sports (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL) since Jan. 26, 1992, during which time Pittsburgh has won two Super Bowls and three Stanley Cups.

The rivalry is already one of the best in the NHL, featuring? Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin. And tonight, the Penguins, who ousted the Caps in the Eastern Conference semis last season, visit the nations' capital.?

Banners aside, the real statement tonight will be made by the final score on the ice.
